Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance (GBLA) is a non-profit organization that offers free legal services in civil matters to low-income residents living in Kern County.

The Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance will host a free Civil Rights and Immigrants Conference to address the current policies and issues immigrants in Kern County face.
